Policy Review committee. Sandy White Shield reported that there will be a meeting with Brett Bump later today to discuss an improved method of editing the policy.
Bill Elliot will change his activity on the Insurance sub-committee. Paul Cedar Face will take over the chair for this committee. Bill will be doing research for the Moodel site. He will be researching doing survey’s for the staff, HSA’s, etc. In his opinion Bill states that it is not a good idea for the College to be switching health companies all the time. Also self-funding is a viable concept that we should research more. He does not believe that Head Start is involved in the insurance yet. If and when they do become involved it will change what our current participation rate is. Open communication on this committee has been a goal of Bills chairmanship and he hopes that this will continue. Though he is not here today Jerry Lessert expressed that he would like to be on the insurance sub-committee. Chair recognizes and gives Bill thanks for his service. Paul Cedar Face is appointed as chair. Chris Janis, the benefits manager will serve on the insurance subcommittee as well. Paul accepts the appointment.
